Amazingly Alphie by Roz Espin

In this brightly illustrated book, readers are introduced to Alphie, a computer that is 'wired differently' and therefore has trouble fitting in and performing successfully. After beginning to doubt his self-worth and his ability to do anything right, Alphie finally meets a human, Chris, who has been hired to fix the malfunctioning computers in the lab. Chris' patient and accepting approach totally changes Alphie's life. Instead of feeling incompatible and useless, Alphie starts to realize that being different is what makes him special, and soon he is free to use his abilities to their fullest -free to be who he was meant to be. This book, written for children ages 8 and up, fosters tolerance and acceptance while celebrating differences. It is a perfect addition to any family and school reading.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
